Why we care about water
According to a recent UN World Water Development Report, a child dies every eight seconds from drinking unsafe water.* 5,000 children die every day and every 21 seconds a child perishes from waterborne diseasess such as typhoid, cholera, and dysentery.**
Ensuring access to clean, safe water worldwide is critical. Not only is it essential for successful agriculture, food, and energy production, it is a children’s issue because water is vital for healthy development and survival. We believe all children need clean, safe water today – so they have a chance at tomorrow.

Too many children are dying for a drink of clean, safe water.
According to a recent UN World Water Development Report, a child dies every eight seconds from drinking unsafe water. Five thousand children die every day. Every 21 seconds, a child dies from waterborne diseases like typhoid, cholera, and dysentery.
Approximately 2,000 U.S. Cities have contaminated drinking water that is deemed unsafe to drink. We think this is a crime. We want to be a force for change. Children are our future. They must have clean, safe water today to live healthy lives and have a chance at tomorrow.
